Brand: Estee Lauder
Range: Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick
Shade: Pink Ambition (Satin Creme)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Tom Pecheux has released 21 shades to the Pure Colour Long Lasting range, in a signature formula that is multi-dimensional an moisturising (with Apricot Kernel, Shea Butter and Vitamins C and E). 
  • The range comes in 2 finishes – Satin Creme & Lustrous Shimmer.
  • Pink Ambition is a satin creme beige pink with subtle gold particles that create an illuminating finish.
  • Recommend wearing this with lip primer, as the illuminating finish can accentuate uneven lip surfaces.
  • The soft and shiny finish is a winner for a long lasting fade proof formula.
  • Verdict: Go for Pink Ambition if you like a fresh and innocent look.  With 21 shades to choose from, highly recommend hopping over to a counter to check out the range.

SUQQU Creamy Glow Lipstick – 14


LIPSTICK, SUQQU, Yishan | by — March 28, 2011

Tags: , ,

Brand: SUQQU
Range: Creamy Glow Lipstick
Shade: 14
Swatched by yours truly: akisa
Available at Mihoko Shop & Ichibankao.

  • Creamy smooth moisturising lipstick that blends easily 
  • Medium coverage with light-diffusing “soft focus powders” to minimise appearance of lip lines.
  • My lip lines are still visible but definitely softer looking, but not as much as other smoothing lipsticks out there. 
  • In office air conditioning, I could get by with just applying this alone without lip balm as it’s so moisturising. 
  • Shade 14 (Amairo) is a warm beige nude, which will suit warmer skin tones.
  • In hindsight I wish I had picked #12 or #13 as pink-beige’s look more flattering on my cool-toned complexion than this one, but who knows how it will turn out since the digital swatches are tiny & so close in shade!!!
  • Verdict: Highly recommended if you love moisturising and creamy lipsticks, but I can think of better alternatives for reducing lip lines.  Unfortunately it may involve trial/error to choose the right shade online since Suqqu’s limited availability means there are limited swatches out there to help decide!

    I love that this nude shade is able to  cover my medium lip tone seamlessly. 

    I bought this from Mihokoshop.com

    Brand: Clarins
    Range: Rouge Hydra Nude Smoothing Lipstick
    Shade: Nude Beige #03
    Swatched by yours truly: akisa

    • Smooth & sheer nude lipstick with mango butter, Vitamin A and E and SPF 6.
    • Available in 4 universal shades: Nude Rose, Nude Coral, Nude Beige & Nude Caramel – designed to enhance your natural lip tones.
    • Nude Beige (pictured) is a warm nude for medium lip tones. The sheer finish allows your natural lip tone to show through & not look washed out.
    • Verdict: A great nude lipstick is hard to find as it’s a very personal choice on which texture, pigment and shade suits you. If you like the idea of a very sheer nude, try it at a Clarins counter to see whether the Rose/Coral/Beige/Caramel variations of this nude lipstick range gives you the finish you’re looking for!
    • Personally I find sheer nudes hard to work with due to my flushed lip tone & need more coverage than this offers.

    Some like their nudes sheer, I like mine with a bit more coverage.
